2. HIGH WAISTED 

Vero Moda, High Waist Hipster

 

High-waisted briefs are having a moment. Just order a dry Provençal rosé and pretend you're on the French Riveria - Instagram will never know you're actually in Margate.

It's no secret that we're wild about animal prints. This zebra motif is a great neutral to clash with other prints (go on, try it with a leopard spot) and solid separates.
